Focal Length: 24.0mm
Focal Length: 24.00mm
Focal Length; 24.0mm
Camera set up on tripod at fixed focal length. Early evening on a grey day against dark building was limited light. I've changed the ISO to try and keep the AV reasonable similar through the series of approx 24 shots at a range of shutter speeds from very fast to very slow.
I've selected three out of the series to highlight the difference.
At 1/160th the action of the cyclist is frozen. At 1/50th there is a sense of movement but the cyclist is still identifiable. However at 1/10th the cyclist is now like a ghost passing by. However this does give a greater sense of speed.
Timing is tricky for each of these. I was aiming to catch the cyclist in front of the wooden doors each time.
